Life at Chawri

Chawri Bazaar- One of the oldest markets of brass, copper, and paper products. It was also the first wholesale market in Delhi. The place has held on to its essence of a traditional marketplace for years and serves as a working platform for Blacksmiths, carpenters, and other craftsmen. Most of the jobs in Chawri are labor intensive, providing work to hundreds of manual laborers every day.

The chaos and the spontaneity of the place attracted me and therefore I started documenting the marketplace. The people and their interactions with the surroundings were fascinating and ever-changing. The project presents the exploration and Serendipity of life in Chawri Bazaar and its proximities.
